Speed limit changes from 45 to 35 near bottom of long hill. Officer got me for 8 mile over and gave me choice of pleading guilty and mailing in my fine or staying to go to court. It was a Friday night and I had out of state plates.

Patrol unit in median at different points between mile markers 272 & 275. Three different agencies man these spots at different times. They are state police, santa rosa city police and guadalupe county sheriff.

Officer enters on ramp. Officer misrepresents the options a person has in dealing with a ticket. Officer states that there are two choices – plead guilty or appear in person. The latter is not true – an attorney can appear on your behalf to reschedule the hearing until you can appear in person. So, not only is this a speed trap, it is extortion.

State Police helicopter coordinating with ground units in middle of the day. I travel this route frequently, but only saw this one time, in Dec. 01. Luckily the helicopter tipped me off however, and I subsequently saw 3 police stops within 20 miles of this generally lightly patrolled part of the state.
